people think we have had such a contentious relationship. he had a past relationship with president obama. most would deny it. mittsaid that he supported romney. he did not do much to support president obama and this election recycle. --did they do a lot to bid bridge the gaps. , we sawuld be persuaded the israeli public they even though it may started with mistrust towards obama, it ended this week with a lot of affection. --really did manage to build bridge some of these gaps. he arrived in israel on wednesday. he met with the prime minister and president perez. he traveled to the west bank and he met with the palestinian authority. on friday, meeting with the president of jordan before playing tourist yesterday and he asked to washington about iran's ambitions. here is more from the trip and the comments of the israeli prime has -- president. we discussed the long-range issues for both of our countries. among these is iran's relentless pursuit of nuclear weapons. , you have made it clear that you are determined to preventing iran from developing nuclear weapons. i appreciate your forth
. >> shepard: we have seen some light-hearted moments i guess you will during president obama's first day in israel. but one of them is not usually a laughing matter. those so-called red lines. remember this at the united nations last year? prime minister netanyahu drew a red line on a cartoon bomb? part of a warning about iran's nuclear program. well, today in israel, the prime minister wasted no time showing the president a different sort of red line. look at this. >> where do you want to start? i would love to take a look. >> following the red line. red line all the time >> bill: i wonder who sent out the blue tie memo. amusing moment between two leaders whose relationship has some observers saying it's kind of tense. and on this day in 1916, albert einstein published his ground-breaking general theory of relativity. it all started about a decade earlier after the 26-year-old genius earned his doctorate. he just developed one of his first major theories focusing on time and space. then he began working on a new concept that included the presence are of gravity. says he came up with it
obama, but succeed on the public part of the trip. it is two trips in one to israel. the public part, you'd be hard- pressed to find a ford minivan'' worth of israelis that are anti- american. they want to like an american president. whatever their differences, for the most part, every stop along the visit is designed, choreographed to touch deeper chords in israeli society, whether it is the shrine of the books, or the stop at hertzel's tomb, or talking to israeli kids about their future in the 21st century. these are things obama will do very well at. i think this trip -- i would be surprised if it is not a success. there'll be some pickups, -- some hiccups, but the big piece, the public part i think is going to be successful to the extent it can. the way i see it, some say obama is just checking a box. i think he sees that the way towards managing his relationship with the israeli government runs through the israeli public. it does not mean that netanyahu is completely poll focused. i think the issue of iran as a gut issue for netanyahu. it is not just looking at public opinion. c
. this is a lifestyle that is one of excess. >> bill: is that true? is mr. obama living like a sultan in the white house? we'll hear what michele bachmann has to say. >> we are also the ones who are paying for someone to walk the president's dog. >> bill: and give you the facts. >> our marines were trained there in hawthorne and with the sequester it's going to cut this stuff back. >> bill: senator harry reid blaming budget cuts for the death of seven marines in nevada. but the marine corps is furious about that. >> marine corps officials this afternoon are taking a strong exception to what harry reid implied. >> bill: we'll have the inside story. >> you have got to ease up. take it easy. >> bill: dennis miller takes a look at the barack obama satan controversy as stephan seagull meeting putin in moscow. >> i want to take you to the bank, to the blood bank. >> caution. you are about to enter the no spin zone. the factor begins right now. >> bill: hi, i'm bill o'reilly. thanks for watching us tonight. america today and the iraq war. that is the subject of this evening's talking points memo. it was 10 yea
. >> big decision to make. eric? >> kerry is in iraq today. president obama returned from his four-day tour of the middle east. the first foreign trip of his second term. first trip to israel as president. some view the trip as a so-called charm offensive. israel and an attempt to thaw the rocky-strained relationship he has with binyamin netanyahu. is that relationship now thawed? will it work? what about iran? joining us as always on sunday mornings, former ambassador john bolton and fox contributor. good morning, ambassador. >> good morning. glad to be with you. >> good to see you, as always. how did he do? how about the relationship between the president and the prime minister? >> i think that the president's trip always had two purposes. one was the public political aspect of the trip to try to repair the very visibly frosty relationship that he had with israel and in his first term. and i think that he largely accomplished that, photo opportunities were great. the -- they had humor, a couple of hugs. really what else could you ask for? but underneath, the second purpose of the trip, i
chris: david, that sounds pretty tough. you think of barack obama as we all know them. he was really there, he was against the iraq war. he was president because of that. >> make no mistake, this is a president that does not want to get into another war. as he looks at syria, he sees a slippery slope. he does not want to slide down it. he had to make those statements this week because he had had said that use of chemical weapons would be a red line. he never said what he would do about it. the one thing that you can be certain of, as obama looks at syria and iran, he wants to avoid any kind of entangling war, long expedition nature war like america has fought over the last 10 years. chris: these wars, if we go into iran, does anyone think it's a quick war, in and out, without historic repercussions on the other side? >> absolutely not, which is part of the reason why nobody within the -- there are very few people in the administration that have any sort of appetite for a war in iran. the same goes with syria. we saw with the libya entanglement, we saw sort of barack obama'
in iran, chemical in syria. has given president obama's middle east trip a new sense of urgency tonight. israeli prime minister benjamin netanyahu says he believes that president obama is determined to keep iran from developing nuclear weapo weapons. he reiterated israel's determination to take military action necessary. the two leaders discussed reports about the use of chemical weapons in syria. crossing of president obama's red line. we have fox team coverage tonight. rosen looks at the iran issue but we begin with ed henry in jerusalem with worries over the deadly action in neighboring syria. hello, ed. >> reporter: good evening, bret. most significant with the president's strong tone throwing out the possibility of military action. he has issued the warpings before. >> talking tough in the first public comments that chemical weapons have been used in syria, president obama said the regime in damascus will be held accountable. >> when you start seeing weapons that can cause potential devastation and mass casualties, and you let that genie out of the bottle, then you are looking pote

to the 600 million-dollar tax increase that obama won in january and they trillion dollars of obamacare tax increases that most americans are unaware of and they don't know that they are getting and obama never talks about the trillion dollars in tax increases starting this year for obamacare. 1.6 and 1.5 is a 3 trillion-dollar tax increase over the next decade if the democratic budget passes and a never balances because they turn round and spend another -- hundreds of millions of dollars more on stimulus programs as well as other stuff. they do more spending with more taxes but with the brian budget does is very interesting for the republican future. it reforms entitlement, protecting everybody over 55 for many changes and makes changes so that younger people will still have these programs. it takes all the welfare programs, 185 different welfare programs and block grants the largest and most expensive ones just as clinton did with aid to families with children. we have this reform of entitlement and reform of these welfare programs and tax reform taking the top rate on individuals to 25%
, top obama architect of that law admitting the obvious, the healthcare law is messy. you think? nothing he neglected to point out a few years ago when the warning could have come in handy. too late. we're knee-deep now and it's costing us through the nose. premiums going up much more than they said. doctors dropping out of their professions, much more than they feared. fine mess, i'm sure, in the fine print. where i'm equally sure there was a blanket policy for policy that would provide no blanket no, warmth, no protection, guarantee you could keep your doctor or plan. no plan. if only the guys read was what they wrote. fine print or no, it's law of the land. the ship sailed and we're all on the same ship. kind of like the carnival passengers. just discovering, even in a sinking cruise, offer you won't guarantee you won't up a be in deep ship. so senator, this is for you. healthcare got to be a huge deal. it is right and left phenomenon. we are digging a ditch at 8:00 p.m. tonight. i am going to be all over it. it will stop. >> andrea: hello, everyone. i'm andrea tantaros with bob becke
in february, and although he refused to answer the question, he said he and president obama had spoken about it "a bit." i think it's interesting to think about the iea th a obama have talked about whether he wants a third term and perhaps how inclined obama is to give it to him. >> rose: a look at syria and chemical weapons. and also the bernanke conversation today about the economy and the role of the federal reserve when we continue. captioning sponsored by rose communications from our studios in new york city, this is charlie rose. >> rose: the syrian conflict reached new levels this week. the assad regime and the syrian opposition groups accused of each other of using chemical weapons. the allegations were made only hours before president obama's departure to israel yesterday. the white house has yet to verify the claims but lawmakers are increasingly calling for action. here's what presidentbama said eaier day in a joint press conference with israeli prime minister netanyahu. >> with respect to chemical weapons, we intend to investigate thoroughly exactly what happened. obviously, in
jay carney was asked about it. i believe it was today. >> to your knowledge has president obama made any effort to meet with or speak with any of the benghazi survivors himself? >> we don't talk about specifics in terms of the president's visits to walter reid. >> or elsewhere? >> i don't have anything for you on that. i don't have the answer to that question. >> eric: asking carney about the allegedly 33 eyewitnesses, survivors of benghazi. your halts? >> greg: they keep saying we went to a republican president, coverup. when it's a democratic president, just shut up. where are the 33 survivors? these people were part of a horrible event. no one heard from them. >> eric: they have the film. >> bob: they have hidden it some place. >> dana: maybe the f.b.i. has interviewed them. it's strange that it has gone on this long. i understand why people are concerned about it. if you talk to the 33 people you don't get to the key question asking who pushed the video? they had nothing to do with that. they might be upset that the video was used as an excuse and it wasn't true. you have won't f

president obama's departure to israel yesterday. the white house has yet to verify the claims but lawmakers are increasingly calling for action. here's what president obama said earlier today in a joint press conference with israeli prime minister netanyahu. >> with respect to chemical weapons, we intend to investigate thoroughly exactly what happened. obviously, in syria right now, you've got a war zone. you have information that's filtered out. but we have to make sure that we know exactly what happened, what was nature of the incident, what can we document, what can we prove. i've instructed me teams to work closely with all other countries in the region, and international organizations, and institutions to find out precisely whether or not this red line was crossed. i will note without at this point having all the facts before me, that we know the syrian government has the capacity to carry out chemical weapon attacks. we know that there are those there the syrian government who have compressed a willingness to use-- expressed a willingness to use chemical weapons if necessary, to prote
ahead. >>> on president obama's trip to israel. today was big speech day, highly anticipated, very warmly received, particularly the part he went off script and surprised everyone. we will have details on that coming up. >>> in washington tonight, the congress packed up and went home. they are taking two weeks off as of tonight. nice work if you can get it, right? before they left, they passed a spending bill that will avoid the threat of a government shutdown next week. not shutting down the whole federal government used to be the kind of thing you could reasonably expect from your congress, the kind of thing they get done as a matter of course. under house speaker john boehner, not shutting down the government has become a notable achievement for this congress. mozle top on that. a low bar. >>> house republicans also voted today again for the paul ryan budget. democrats are very excited about that because they plan to use that vote against republicans in campaign ads for the next election. we have the one and only ezra klein here momentarily to sort out what's important about wha
goodness it is "the cycle." president obama meets the so-called modern king. is this the end of america's reign on the world stage? >> i'm sitting in for toure's book. that is the last time we're going to mention it today. >> no, it's not. >> boom! i have to till, i can get used to this. that's my kind of humor. >> i'll be laughing all the way to the bank. see what i did there? we were talking about humor. we're going to show you how to tip the odds in your favor on everything from the stock market to your week on the tennis court. game, set, match. "the cycle" starts right now. >> don't get used to it. from peace talks to syria, president obama's wrapping up his mideast tour. this is actually really cool. we were looking at this map before the show. this is cool. president obama is out of israel and spending the night in jordan. he arrived this morning. abdullah is the region's most pro american leader. he survived the arab spring with few scars while watching the others fall. the atlantic even coined him, the modern king in the arab spring. unfortunately for him his desert kingdom is
across the board now. so, yes. >> thanks very much. barack obama is set to arrive in israel on wednesday. it will be his first official visit as u.s. president. israel and the u.s. are, of course, close allies, but obama did not travel to the country during his first term. >> that decision was widely considered a snub of israel, and many israelis view the u.s. leader with a bit of skepticism. winning over public opinion is a top priority on this trip along with the stalled middle east peace process and iran's nuclear peace program. >> the white house is on a charm offensive. last week, barack obama spoke on israeli television, addressing directly some of israel's concerns. > i have been crystal clear about my position on iran possessing a nuclear weapon -- that is a red line for us. it is something that would not only be dangerous for israel but would be dangerous for the world, dangerous for u.s. national security interests. >> in washington, it is no secret that obama does not have a good relationship with israel's prime minister, benjamin netanyahu. even if they put on a united front

they were unchanged in 17 states. fell in just 8. as we have seen, president obama does not often play it safe in the cabinet nominations. at least the second time around. today he picked a justice department official who according to an inspector general report may have been less than forthcoming, about a controversial case mixing race, voting right, intimidation and politics. james rosen is in the white house. >> to lead this in the sustained unemployment, president obama nominated tom perez. >> he has fought to open pathway in workforce for everyone willing to contribute, including those with disabilities, lgbt americans and immigrants. he has helped settle the largest cases ever on behalf of families targeted by unfair mortgage lending. >> the son was a staff lawyer to kennedy and labor secretary for maryland. >> i'm confident that together, the business community, republicans, democrats, independents the like we can keep making progress for all the working families. >> some business leader like miller and long, the mid-atlantic largest employment structure voiced fear that perez w

workers it comes to mind that president obama nominateed tomas perez secretary of labor. does he help with what you're talking about? >> oh absolutely. 's terrific lawyer. we worked together in the clinton administration. he really understands these issues. i think that you're going to see a very forceful advocate, and someone who is very knowledgeable and can really help the administration navigate in the coming months the negotiations on this issue of immigration reform. >> michael: and do you think then that we will see comprehensive immigration reform this year? >> you know, i have been working on this issue for over ten years, even when i was in the white house, you know, 13, 14 years ago. so i am cautiously optimistic, but the real--i actually saw what i guess boehner said something today about the secret committee in the house that is also very close to negotiating something, the bipartisan group. that is the first sign of that i've seen. it will be the house republicans who are worried about tea party challenges, challenges from the right. they will be the obstacle. if there c
to "weekends with alex witt." let's get to what's happening right now out there. as president obama heads back to the u.s., just about 90 minutes or so from now after the final stop on his mideast trip he visited the fables city of petra, jordan, this morning. and one major topic of discussion for the president, the civil war going on in nearby syria, and the massive number of syrian refugees now in jordan. nbc's peter alexander is traveling with the president and joins us from amman. so peter with a good saturday morning to you. how has this trip gone so far for the president in jordan? >> well, right now, alex, the president's enjoying the end of his trip. punctuating it, as you noted, with a trip to the celebrated archaeological site in this country known as petra. the focus of the trip has largely been on the future. but at least for the last couple hours he's focusing on the middle east past. advisers tell me this is actually a place that president obama added to the itinerary. a destination that he very much wanted to see. sandstorms delayed his travel yesterday. but today that's proving
the private parts of ducks. this is part of president obama stimulus plan and just one example of the kind of spending decisions that add up to massive debt and deficit. tonight, there is a week-long series on what to cut. >> government is not the solution to the problem. government the problem. >> rare of big government is over. >> every president called to streamline federal bureaucracy but none succeeded. >> government is largeer than it ever has been. the debt is growing at record rate. >> adjusted for inflation. government spending went up from $882 billion spent every year in 1980s to $1.48 trillion in the 1990s. $2.24 trillion a year and the first decade of the 21st century. mast ited that government will have spent almost as much in the first four years as a new decade as in the 1990s. >> in the past there bar crisis like world war ii or the korean war, nondefense spending was cut by 20 to 30%. >> that didn't happen after 9/11 or after the financial crisis. >> nothing typifies the expansion of government as much as the growing wealth of the washington, d.c. area. region with few ne
